Security guard interrupted sexual abuse of boy inside Rock ‘n’ Roll McDonald’s restroom, prosecutors say

Bryan Sutton | CPD

Prosecutors released new information on Tuesday about the alleged sexual abuse of a 6-year-old boy in a restroom at the Rock ‘n’ Roll McDonald’s, 600 North Clark. Bryan Sutton, 62, is charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated criminal sexual abuse in the case. Judge Susan Ortiz ordered him held without bail.

The boy went to McDonald’s with his dad and one of his dad’s friends a little before 6 p.m. Saturday, and all three headed to the restroom.

Prosecutors said the boy stepped into a stall but did not lock the door because his father was afraid he would lock himself inside. As the father was washing his hands, Sutton allegedly entered the boy’s stall, where the child’s pants were down.

A McDonald’s security guard who was keeping an eye on Sutton entered the restroom around that time and allegedly found Sutton in the stall with the boy. Sutton is said to have had his hands on the boy, grinding and moaning while the boy cried.

The guard removed Sutton from the stall, but Sutton punched the guard in the head, prosecutors said. Chicago cops had to taze Sutton to get him into custody. The boy was taken to Lurie Children’s Hospital for an evaluation.

Court records show that Sutton was arrested at the Daley Center on July 7 for allegedly attacking a Cook County sheriff’s deputy inside a restroom. However, because the deputy did not appear in court within 30 days, prosecutors were forced to drop the felony charges. The case has now been presented to a grand jury for possible indictment.
